Was the old server a 32 bit?
If you are migrating from a 32 bit to a 64 bit then I don't know if the registry settings are going to import this way.  
On a 64 bit machine, it will run 32 bit code but it is in a compatibility mode.  The registry and its settings are set up to handle 64 bit applications as the default.  
You might need to modify your files to change the registry paths they are referencing to make a 32 bit reference work on a 64 bit machine.

Yes the old server was 32bit... I dont think registry setting are the problem... we didnt move any over.

Has anybody used smtpreg.vbs on a 64bit 2008 server?
Check out this page ... they appear to be doing what you are trying to do.

One question, from looking at their config and instructions ... is the drive and path to the .vbs file in the second command correct?  This is the only thing that I see that might be causing a problem.
